CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It is one of the countless Linux distributions in existence, but what distinguishes it from all the others is the long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a stable and protected Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, which is longer than with any other OS available. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so if you experience any problem or have some questions, you'll be able to instantly find the information that you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, as it is very stable and secure, which makes it really reliable even if you host private data. Considering that it is open-source, you can modify each and every part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you will not need to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

You will be able to pick CentOS for your new virtual private server during the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, in order to give you the opportunity to choose the one that will be more suitable for the apps that you wish to set up and run. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you wish to do - to set up a separate account for each domain hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domain names together and control the server as a single account. You'll also have the option to obtain your VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet devoid of the additional software which comes with the Control Panels. This way, you will be able to install web or database servers that are different from the standard ones that we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

You are able to get CentOS with each dedicated server which we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you will be able to pick on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we provide, so you'll be able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to set up a variety of website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
